Christmas songs Product Information
Christmas album for sale by Old Man Gloom was released Aug 24, 2004 on the Tortuga label. By the release of Old Man Gloom's third long-player, Christmas, in late 2004, their fans knew exactly what to expect: violent emotional release through impossibly heavy yet, at the same time, strangely beautiful explosions of post-metalcore firepower, interspersed with the mounting tension brought on by conversely peaceful stretches of ambient/electronic near silence. In other words, you don't have to be a musical masochist to love OMG, but it sure does help. Maybe it's the harsh disparities in volume from song to song, which make the use of headphones almost mandatory, or perhaps the disappointing brevity of so many positively stunning compositions (cruelly snatched away like candy from a child, after just a few licks), compounded with the knowledge that had they fallen under the aegis of sister band Isis, these hypnotic wonders would have been stretched almost indefinitely. ...See Full Description

||Gurus of Hardcore scene underperform|
Being a big fan of Isis and Cave In the record sounded intriguing. However upon listening it proved dissapointing. There is a constant effort towards originality and attempts to create an atmospheric Isis like feel.

||"Best" of their discography|
A strong, atmospheric sounding and menacing album, "Christmas" is the most easily accessible of OMG's discography. Several tracks are in the vein of Cave In's "Perfect Pitch Black" and although it's sometimes hard to differentiate between Caleb Scofield's voice on this album and his other works, it's a great album.

||Christmas defies description|
After listening to OMG's earlier material, I'm sure of it: this is a pinnacle work, one that this group is probably not going to top any time soon.
By John (Denver, CO)
||Enter The Void With A Smile...|
Old Man Gloom has transcended all that we have come to know and love them by. Although Christmas is not a drastic difference between Meditations in B and Seminar I & II it still takes their style to a whole new extreme level.
